Group: Summary

   The NASA IceBridge PARIS Level-2 Ice Thickness (IRPAR2) data set contains 
   Greenland ice thickness measurements acquired using the Pathfinder Advanced 
   Radar Ice Sounder (PARIS). The data files are in ASCII text format and contain 
   fields for latitude, longitude, time, ice thickness, aircraft altitude, and 
   confidence of thickness measurement.   The data were collected as part of 
   Operation IceBridge funded campaigns, and are available via FTP for ten days 
   spanning 01 April 2009 to 02 May 2009.
